Stating that Manisa Municipality and the Directorate of Railways have good works at these points, Daşöz said, “Our Municipality has planned a total of six crossings, three overpasses and three underpasses. They will be tendered in a short time. Probably all of these will end within three to four months. During this period, we ask our citizens to be careful while using these crossings, to cross them after they are sure of security by looking left and right. When these investments are completed, they will be relieved. But the places where the railroad and the highway intersect are always places that require attention. Even if there is a passage, they are still places to be careful. We request that our Municipality, Railways Directorate and Police Department act quickly and in full cooperation. But basically the solution is through the overpass. " found the assessment.
